Running late, no change there. 17miles and 24minutes, its still on
Birthday cake. Downhill start, downhill?? Boggy off camber climb. Cold air on lungs, brilliant sunny morning, yet still october. Quiet roads. Waterfalls at Cauldron Snout. Ford crossings, don't wimp out and take the bridge. High Cup Nick opening in front of you. Blast down to Dufton, the Yeti dances. Girlfriend breaks some spokes. Climb up tarmac to Dunfell. Try to get back before the light fades. Coffee and cake with friends. 6degress C. Back in time for rugby.
